The steel frame of the P3Steel could easily scratch up any surface it sits on, and vibrations and movement may be translated down through it’s legs. I am building the printer on a table, so was very aware of scratching it(!) A look on Thinkgiverse shows a lot of different feet for the printer, but there was one that had all six together, including the two “middle” feet which I think help support the inner/middle frame. Original model is by Diegomanitas and can be found here – http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:592637. My make can be found here – http://www.thingiverse.com/make:229263.
I did one foot print to start with just to check the fit, and all was fine, so I printed the rest (I was able to split the six part STL in Cura to test the single print). After printed they all slotted on without any fuss, and no clean up. I should have used a raft for my printer to get them level and true, but I intend to add a layer of foam to the bottom, so any irregularities will not show up. Plus before I glue on the foam layer, I may well give them a little sand too. Check out the time lapse below. Don’t forget to subscribe to my channel to keep up to date with new videos too!

Here are the feet after the print, all lined up nicely!
And fitted onto the P3Steel frame. The fit really well and stay on with friction (for now!).
